Last month our Cross-Cultural Educator, Flora, took students from Rostrevor College on a tour around Wandana Mosque as a part of our Unity in Diversity program.
She discussed the topic of Islam and Muslims, and answered questions regarding common misconceptions regarding them. Flora also conversed about fasting and the month of Ramadan, particularly on its importance and the difficulties associated with it.
It was an informative session that allowed the students to walk away more informed and with a better understanding of the importance of having Unity in Diversity.
Thank you to Wandana Mosque for hosting us and to Rostrevor College for attending!

As part of the Unity in Diversity program, 60 students from St. Francis school had an opportunity to visit and tour Marion Mosque on 4 March 2021.
Several focus groups were conducted with schools, which aims to promote harmony in SA by raising awareness and understanding of Islam and Muslims living in SA.
These interactive sessions, held in March, were well-received by St Mary’s College and Salisbury High School, with students asking questions that seek to clarify misinterpretations of Islam and understand a Muslim’s way of life.
Students were able to practice safe distancing while engaging in the focus groups.
